Get Customize.app To Work With Your Carrier

October 4th, 2007 · 15 Comments · Apple, Applications, iPhone, Mods

T-Mobile

I have T-Mobile and Customize.app would not change my carrier logo to the custom icons I wanted. I have edited the customize.app so that it works with T-Mobile. You can download the file Chooser view. You will need to ssh the file to root/applications/customize.app/settings and replace the chooserViews.plist. You will then be able to change carrier logs with customize if you are using T-Mobile.

If you have a different carrier: open up chooserViews.plist and edit wherever it says TMOBILE and change it to your carrier. It should be 2 files that you edit.

You May also want to go into var/root/Library/Customize/CarrierImages/BackUp and put your default carrier logos there.

    Hi!

    I’m also using the same network as you, so T-Mobile, but in Hungary. On the display I can see T-Mobile H. But it is a bit longer than any others so, after a couple of slides it’s just displays “T-Mo….”.

    I have tried several methods to change the icon, or the “name” but I haven’t find any that helped to me.

    Does anybody know in wich file the iphone kepts the network names?

    My network ID is 21630, every network has it own number and in the mobiles there is a file from which the phone replace these addresses (like 21630).

    Thanks,
    WandO

    have you tried replacing the default carrier tmobile PNG?

  • WandO

    Yes, I tried it but also did not helped to me.

    My phone displays my carrier as “T-Mobile H”. I’e tried to rename the carrier png as well but also did not worked.

    This doesn’t work for me.
    I followed the above directions but the additional options dont appear.

    Do I need to get the icons, or are they part of the download?

    Thanks

    You need to get icons. On installer there are customize themes. Donload the designer packs.

    From where might I find these icons?
    I was looking for : T-Mobile, Deutsche Telekom etc.

    Thanks

    You can make them yourself and then I will add them to installer for you. I already have T-Mobile on my source. Add http://limitededitioniphone.com/lei.xml to installer and then click on the T-Mobile category to install the T-mobile icons

    Ok did the first part where or what is the T-Mobile category be under.
    I looked but the description does not say T-Mobile within the pre installed package.

    As for Deutsche Telekom I am not sure where I would find and or how to convert it.
    I am old in respect to age and new at this.
    Thanks

    I’m running Customize 1.1.3 (custom) and my Carrier Images FILE do not show up on the customize app when i open it (not just the images, but the whole file is not there) when i ssh into the phone the file is there… only not on the iphone.. any suggestions?

  • emin

    every single time i change in it customize…. it still shows the regular t-mobile in normal writing…. does not change to a picture or any different.

  • Denis Dimick

    Looks like 1.1.4 breaks the hack. :(

    I miss the custom image.

    Have you thought about adding this to the Cyria apt-get repository?
